Donald Trump would love for everyone to believe that he’s the greatest supporter of the military and veterans of all time. Unfortunately for him, anyone with sense knows that’s not true.

Trump’s Twitter spree on Thursday didn’t impress anyone. All his honoring of the military, all his proclamations about how his presidency has supported the troops doesn’t include transgender soldiers. It certainly doesn’t include the thousands of troops stationed at the border waiting on a “caravan” that Trump totally lost interest in once the midterms were over. It certainly didn’t include John McCain, who Trump said wasn’t a military hero “because he was captured.” Trump only likes “people who weren’t captured.”

Meanwhile, everyone knows that Trump dodged the draft during the Vietnam War by claiming he had bone spurs, but went on to play sports and golfs frequently.

The controversy over Trump skipping the Armistice Day celebration while in France and failing to visit the cemeteries where fallen soldiers are buried on Veteran’s Day had people on both sides of the aisle enraged. Trump couldn’t attend because it was raining. He actually used that as an excuse and blamed the Secret Service for it.

All of Trump’s events honoring veterans are little more than photo ops to boost his Republican image. After all, unlike every other president, he still hasn’t even visited the troops.

Twitter was not forgiving of Trump’s many transgressions regarding our service members, both active and retired. Read some of their comments below:
